Arlington Police say they're investigating four recent reports of child indecency.
They're not sure whether or not the suspect is the same in each incident, but they happened within close proximity -- on the eastern side of the city, north of Pioneer Parkway near New York Avenue and east of State Highway 360.
In all of the incidents, four girls that range in age from 12 to 16 say they were approached from behind by a man while walking home in the afternoon and at night. The suspect fled on foot in each case.
The most recent reported incident took place Jan. 16 around 6:30 p.m. in the 2300 block of Huntington Drive. A 16-year-old was coming home from a local park when the suspect grabbed her from behind and tried to put his hand in her pants.
The victim screamed and the suspect ran away.
The previous incidents took place Nov. 15 in the 800 block of E. Timberlake Drive, Dec. 10 in the 2200 block of E. Park Row Drive and Jan. 2 in the 1800 block of E. Tucker Boulevard.
Descriptions of the suspect vary in each of the incidents, but all of the victims report being attacked by a Hispanic male who either spoke Spanish or had a heavy accent.
Police have stepped up patrols in the area and are working to promote safety education.
